This no-chop chicken enchilada rice bake is full of tender chicken, sweet corn, rice, black beans, and cheese baked in a zesty enchilada sauce.

What You Need

Chicken Enchilada Bake


  1. HEAT oven to 425°F. Measure out the enchilada sauce and add enough water to total 2 1/2 cups liquid.
  2. WHISK together sauce and cornstarch in a 9 x 13-inch baking dish. Reserve 1/2 cup corn for garnish; set aside. Stir remaining corn, rice, beans, and half of cheese into the sauce.
  3. PRESS chicken into the sauce-rice mixture in a single layer. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese.
  4. COVER tightly with foil and bake 20 minutes on middle oven rack. Uncover; sprinkle with reserved corn. Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Let stand 5 minutes before serving with toppings, as desired.

For Chicken Enchilada Burritos, spoon into corn or flour tortillas using toppings as fillings, as desired.
